KZSC's Odessey and Oracle LP - now autographed!!

Hear The Zombies interviewed on KZSC

On September 7th, Carol from KZSC’s Test of Time and Keith from Moon Majoon spoke with 1960s pop legends, The Zombies. It was hours before their show at The Catalyst with Bruce Sudano opening that they visited our studios. The Zombies regularly get named, alongside The Beatles and The Beach Boys, as the having the best songs and vocal harmonies of the 1960s. In the interview they speak about how those other two bands’ studio innovations directly benefitted the recording of The Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle.

Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, who together represent more than 100 years of professional musicianship, also share the story of the founding and dissolution of the Zombies and traced some of the impact that British jazz and choral music had on their songwriting and performing. We also learned what it was like to work with the infamously tyrannical director Otto Preminger, and how the Zombies stood up to him.

Zombie Bash Oct. 26th

Halloween has always been like New Years, Christmas and your birthday celebration all at once in Santa Cruz. Celebrated like no other event, the bonus in 2013 is there’s a weekend before AND after October 31st. Try this for starters: a night of undead rocking to DJ Frank Zummo and a performance by Street Drum Corps’ Blood Drums during “Zombie Bash” Saturday, October 26th.  The pre-Halloween party includes creepy costume contests with cash prizes, photo booths, zombie drink specials and undead delicacies available until 1 AM. Needless to say, leave the under 21 zombies at home. The “Zombie Bash” starts at 8:30 pm at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk’s Cocoanut Grove Ballroom. More good news for zombies: it won’t cost and arm and a leg!
